Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I can honestly say that our stay here was perfect! The owners Melanie and her husband were so welcoming and friendly that it felt as if we had known them for years! The accommodation was beautiful, high quality and very tastefully furnished. There was every thing that we needed for our stay, with peaceful picturesque surroundings . I didn't want to come back home afterwards. If you ask me if I would recommend this holiday it would be a resounding Yes, although to be honest I had wanted to keep this secret to myself!

I stayed for 3 nights with my 3 children aged 18, 13 and 5. The accommodation was excellent, very spacious and clean. It was very well equipt with everything we would need and more. Very warm welcome with milk and eggs waiting for us in kitchen which is such a lovely touch. Kids had a fantastic time and enjoyed the grounds and especially the chickens who were very friendly.

We would be keen to come back again in the future and I would highly recommend to my friends and family.

“Great base for exploring Scotland”
Reviewed October 14, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Travelling with a party of 5 we had a very comfortable stay in this cottage. We had a very warm welcome from out hosts (and their gorgeous dog and friendly chickens!!) who helped us settle in and provided some great information to help us explore the local area. Accommodation was very clean and of a high standard. A great location, we were able to explore a few lochs, Pitlochry, St Andrews, Edinburgh all within reasonable driving distance, Blairgowrie itself is also a good town to explore! Would recommend it for anyone wanting a comfortable base to explore Scotland!!

“Delightful and safe”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Personalised service from the owners,excellent location for exploring Perthshire. Clean and spacious 4 bedded log cabin on a small site situated in a lovely safe 'meadow' with resident hens ! Spent a lovely week here,exploring the surrounding area returning to the log cabin for daily outdoor play, our grandkids loved the freedom this site afforded them. The owners were friendly and helpful (fresh eggs and milk in the fridge upon our arrival) not only did Mel deliver a cupcake tray so that we could bake on a rainy afternoon, she also left a supply of fancy cake decorations! We shared our efforts with the other family on the site and the kids delivered Mel and Keith a few over-decorated fairy cakes ! All in all a lovely holiday. Thanks Mel & Keith !

“Perfect Getaway to Chill out!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I am one of a 5 member group of musicians who endlessly travel all over Britain and usually stay in hotels, but within the 2 weeks touring around Scotland playing Concerts we decided to base ourselves at Pontfauld Holidays in Blairgowrie. Easy distance to shoot off and gig in Aberdeen and Edinburgh during our stay, and on the other days just simply chill out in the beautiful countryside of Perthshire. We stayed in the 3 bedroomed 'Fir Tree Lodge' and on arrival was welcomed with a bowl of fresh eggs. This wooden lodge is so clean and spacious with central heating if cold which we did not need as the weather was so warm. Keith and Mel are such friendly and easygoing hosts with added help from their daughters. If you are into Golf or Skiing it is the ideal location. The next tour up in Scotland for us we are going to have to find time for another visit. That's Rock n' Roll!!!!
